The Rio Grande Sun of Espanola, New Mexico, is “one tough weekly,” reports Joel Campbell in the online version of the Columbia Journalism Review. The newspaper, located north of Santa Fe, is featured in the documentary film “The Sun Never Sets.” (Above is the film’s trailer.) Campbell reports: “The filmmaker, Ben Daitz, chronicles the work of hardworking journalists in a place that seems to be a magnet for corruption, cronyism, alcoholism, and drug addiction. Or maybe it’s no more a magnet for such things than some other places, but just happens to have a fiercely dedicated watchdog that takes its First Amendment role seriously.”
